hello, i have just plugged both the drives into the purple slots (the G,SATA ports) and now it comes up:

"NO Araray Defined...

Press CTRL+F to enter FastBuild Utility"

I press this and now only number 4 - "Controller Config" is working, I cannot press 2 - Define LD to set up the array :s
So now the HDD's are not RAIDed, shall I skip past this and still try the install by pressing F6 during the Windows setup?

OK...it really should be able to read the driver from a USB - copy to driver to separate FAT32 formatted USB (not the one you are installing Windows from!)

^^ Nope, you have to build the array first. What options do you have under Controller Configuration?

oh, there are no options it simply states the model build and another number, no more options other than Esc - taking you back to 1,2,3,4, and then when you press 1,2,3 nothing happens;
I have seen many people with this problem before on forums but cannot follow up with any more info
